In pictures: 35 years of live music at Nottingham's Rock City

In December 1980, Rock City opened in Nottingham. David Bowie, Guns N' Roses and Nirvana have all performed there, earning it a reputation as a leading music venue. Thirty five years after it all started, BBC News looks back at some of the highlights.

Following the opening gig by The Undertones, Echo and the Bunnymen, UK Subs and The Stranglers performed at the 2,000 capacity venue.

When David Bowie performed at Rock City during his 1997 Earthling Tour, Nottingham's LeftLion magazine reported that he had four couches and a Persian rug brought to his dressing room.

The magazine said Axl Rose, of Guns N' Roses, was another big name to have left his mark.

In 1987, the American rockers played Rock City as part of their first European tour.

It was reported that vocalist Rose arrived alone at the front doors, dressed in only a bathrobe, and was refused entry.

He was let in later when he returned with his security pass.

Anton Lockwood, promotions director at Rock City, said: "At the time, Guns N' Roses didn't even sell out.

"They were the hot new band, but we only knew a little bit about them."

He said he heard Axl Rose was wandering around in his dressing gown because he had locked himself out of the tour bus.
